Little Twist Coffee Cup Cozy
Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing at all against tea, and these cozies will hug your mug no matter what you have decided to put in it. Also, these are perhaps the perfect knitted gifts to make for your friends and family. The cozy is worked in a rib pattern, which gives it the elasticity it needs to stretch over a cup without sagging, and the Little Twist I’ve added to it, adds a little more depth.

Alternatively, you can get all of these items at your local craft and/or dollar store – no yarn snobbery allowed here.
Little Twist = worked over two stitches. Slip the first stitch as if to knit, and then knit the next stitch. Bring your left needle over to the stitch you slipped, and insert your left needle into that stitch, and pass it over the stitch you just knitted. You’ll have a strand of yarn drawing a slightly twisted arch over the knitted stitch. Knit that stitch that you just moved back over to the left needle. (Sl, K1, PSSO, K)
CO 36 sts
Row 1: *P2, K2, repeat from * across
Row 2: *P2, K2, repeat from * across

Cut yarn leaving about a 12” tail, and attach darning needle.
Secure the last stitch, and pur the cast on edge next to the bind off edge, and stitch closed the top 1/2 inch of the seam.
Weave the sewing yarn down through one side of the seam, leaving a nice little gap for the handle of your mug to fit through.
Stitch the remaining 1/2 “ of the seam.
